What causes worm in stool?

I found a worm looking thing in the toilet after my daughter had a bm. It was coiled up like a rubber band. I took it out with toilet paper and it was about 4 inches long and rubbery it was kind of a beige color. I looked through her bm and found nothing. Is it possible it was from someone else already in the toilet. Does it sound like a worm? It didn t have a head or black spot. My toilet was clogged. Could it be from something else?

Hi,
From history it seems that there might be having round worm or tape worm found in bowel movement.
Go for her stool test for ova and cyst.
Give her one course of Albendazole tablet stat.
Keep her nail well cut and do not allow her to play in dust or out side.
Ok and take care.
